Contemporary wildlife painter Catherine Ingleby imparts a sensitive study which focuses on creating an impression of the majestic temperament of a group of lions. The artist imbues the figurative rendering with soft, golden lighting, employing warm hues to suggest the hot ambience of the species’ natural environment. Built up in layers of oils, the artist uses a vibrant red underpainting which adds vibrancy and further highlights the deserts climate and the beauty of the animals. As the lions are gorgeously depicted bathed in sunlight, exerting a sense of vigour, this piece captures a powerful portrait that evokes the freedom of the African savannahs. This piece is painted in oils on canvas, hand signed by the artist and ready to be displayed.
